I got my husband the Department 56 ceramic facade of old Comiskey. They also sell a souvenir shop, bar and refreshment stand to go with it that he will be getting for future occasions! :smile:

My bday was the 13th, so I got a pseudo combo gift..

A Horizontal, 3 picture matted frame....one of the team posing as division champs, one as AL champs, and one as WS champs. There's a small engraved plaque, in black at the bottom: Chicago White Sox, 2005 World Series Champions. She also ordered a curio cabinet for me for my hats/baseballs to live in....as soon as I find that damn AL Central hat though....:angry:

If anyone wants good practical advice regarding conversion tactics, send me a message and I'll give it to you. It will get detailed.....

My wife HATED baseball when I first met her, but after giving her that Konerko White Sox jersey for Christmas and fortifying the closet with yet another White Sox T-shirt for Valentine's day, well....... YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD, YES!!!

I think the best advice is just exposing them to the game and seeing why it's the best.

However converting a non fan to a White Sox fan seems a little easier than a Cubs fan to a White Sox fan.

My wife is getting me tickets to the exhibition game vs the Braves - skybox.

Man, and I just painted pottery with her on a date. :smile:

For conversion tactics, read the book "1984"

1. Bring her to a game or three; let her experience the atmosphere: walk around and see all the interesting facets of the ballpark, get her some of the great grub, etc.

2. Get pictures of players like Pods, Konerko, and the other 'hotties' of the club and put them in her room...although this could be a risky tactic to your relationship. :cool:

Its a simple 3 step program

(1) drop girlfriend off at Urinal
(2) Cruise down to USCF
(3) Look for Lonely Hot Babe in a Konerko jersey

Sure Fire Plan to starting the day with a cubs gf and ending it with a sox one

I am beginning to believe that being a cubs fan is more like an illness than merely a bad choice. With that in mind you might try "intervention therapy." It does seem to work well for some drug addicts and alcoholics. It just might work for cubs fans too. If that doesn't work, Domeshot17 has a good plan too.

Good luck. There is nothing better than experiencing the World Champion Chicago White Sox with a woman you love.

I got a Konerko autographed ball. Very cool indeed.

Oh, and to convert your G/F to a Sox fan, just show her pictures of Jon Garland. My g/f is in love with him
